Kimerald fans *literally* couldn't keep their chill last October 24 when Dreamscape broke the major news that they're bringing together Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson in a teleserye after 6 long years!

The hashtag KIMERALD IS BACK and the title of their new sports-themed series Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin even trended.

And during the launch of the ABS-CBN Christmas Station ID, Kim and Gerald's scene was one of the highlights!

The overwhelming public reaction was not surprising at all since everyone missed seeing the loveteam on our TV screens! As we wait for Kimerald's official comeback, let's look back at their 10-year journey in the showbiz industry!

2006: The birth of Kimerald

Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition

The well-loved tandem met inside the PBB house but she was initially linked to fellow Chinese cutie Mikee Lee. Because of their natural chemistry and undeniable closeness, many viewers from all over the world shipped Kim and Gerald and dubbed them as "Kimerald".

After the Big Night, they officially entered showbiz via the shows Aalog-alog, Love Spell, and Your Song Presents. They also co-starred in the movie First Day High - with Maja Salvador!
